The latest test version of the Qfusion-powered Warsow open-source first person shooter is now available.

Warsow 1.4 RC was announced this weekend and compared to Warsow 1.3 it features:

- Fixed internet ogg streams
- Fixed server crasher in reporting match results to the MM
- Fixed batched autosprite2 surfaces in wdm19 and other maps
- Demos are now GZ-compressed on the fly
- You can now copy console contents to clipboard in Linux
- Fixed fullscreen mode setting in i3, WindowMaker and possibly other X11 window managers
- Split race servers into separate tab in server browser
- Dedicated servers refresh IP addresses of master servers every 24 hours
- r_texturefilter now defaults to 4
- UI remembers last selected tab in server browser
- Other less notable changes here and there


More details on Warsow 1.4 RC can be found via this forum thread. As of late there's been a number of Warsow development releases... betas for Warsow 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3. There's now Warsow 1.4 RC while the latest official Warsow version remains at Warsow 1.02. Hopefully a new official release will make it out soon for this cross-platform Windows and Linux open-source game.
